With its dense chromaticism, intricate counterpoint, and Wagnerian drive sweeping toward a great climax, Metamorphosen is a memorial to a type of music that had been abandoned long before 1945. It succeeds so brilliantly because Strauss at last found a way to address the present with the voice of the past.

Schumann too linked past and future in his Violin Concerto which has been described as the missing link between Beethoven and Brahms. It is a melancholy yet achingly beautiful reflection of his failing state of mind.

Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony is extrovert from the outset, conjuring up the sunny skies and landscapes of the Italian countryside in a virtually flawless assembly of airy and fiery dances, never letting the excitement lapse for a moment.
